The St. Louis Rams entered the offseason with 15 unrestricted free agents, but they refused to retain even one of those players.
There's not exactly a surplus of can't-miss talent on a team that finished with a 2-14 record, but the massive deportation of players certainly leaves a sizable void on the roster nonetheless.
With so many open roster spots, it was clear that head coach Jeff Fisher and Co. planned a total makeover of the team, and this year's free-agency period has given the fans their very first glimpse at the brand new St. Louis Rams.
So far, Fisher has attempted to sign player who are not only capable of being leaders but who also fit in with the new offensive and defensive schemes.
Let's take a look at every free-agent signing and evaluate each move with a letter grade.
Note on Grading System
Each player will be graded on a 1 to 10 scale in three different categories, which will determine the letter grade.
The three categories are "Blockbuster", "Cost/Value" and "Need."
"Blockbuster" is determined by the player's name recognition and popularity as perceived by the fans and the media. It's not terribly important, but big-time players are well known for a reason.
"Cost/Value" is determined by the amount of the player's contract and the amount of overall production expected from the player.
"Need" refers to the player's position and whether or not the team is desperate for talent at that particular position. Considering the lack of talent on the Rams, most players will score well in this category.
